Watch Cathy Hobbs Mondays on HGTV Design Star 9 PM EST
After attending a massive casting call held in New York City and a series of additional auditions that spanned 2 more months, I was selected to be among the 12 designers cast for the coveted 12 slots on Season 6 of HGTV’s Design Star!! I certainly did not think that out of literally thousands of people auditioning through casting calls held in 7 cities nationwide that I would be among the 12 people selected for a tv show as big as Design Star. Watch as I try to sew, saw, and design my way through the competition, with the hope of hosting my own HGTV show! I can tell you, as always I will provide viewers with practical and affordable “design recipes” for you to follow at home! Be sure to vote for me as your fan favorite!
About Design Recipes Founder
Hi there! On HGTV's Hit Reality TV Show Design Star I sew, nail and saw my way through some pretty tough challenges, but design doesn't have to be hard! I believe in combining simple, timeless design ingredients to create what I call "Design Recipes". Thank you so much for stopping by Design Recipes. I hope you find this to be a truly awesome website and resource full of design tips, articles, interesting podcasts, how-to videos and of course design recipes galore! I invented Design Recipes simply because I love sharing my ideas!
For years I collected design magazines, tagged and clipped pages with inspirational images and did nothing! That's because I didn't have the resource information so I could purchase the beautiful furniture I was seeing on the pages of the magazines! With Design Recipes, I SHARE how the room was executed, giving you the basic design tools needed for you to recreate the same look on your own and best of all I give you all of the resource information! Enjoy your Design Recipes! No recipe is the same and I would love to hear your comments and questions.

TIP OF THE WEEK : DECORATE
East Meets West.
I love using Asian influences in my design work. I love to travel and involve global influences into my designs. One way for you to do this in your own home is to incorporate your inspirations into accessories. In this space strong woods dominate with a touch of Asian "whimsy" visible through table lamps with rice paper shades and an iron circular wall hanging.
